F: Aren't you going to give us a training workshop next week? How are things going on your preparation for the presentation?

M: I'm having trouble narrowing down my topic for the training. I want to speak about how to improve our sales technique, but there is so much to say, it's hard to get organized.

F: Our training group won't be very large, so you will have more time to focus on more areas. We can cover a lot of ground in an hour and a half, if everyone is participating and paying attention.
